    I have to confess that I wasn't really aware of this fella until I heard him in an interview on a repeat of an Anthony Bourdain show, anyhow, I have bought quite a number of his albums recently. Bloody brilliant he is.

    Ballad Of The Broken Sea's that he did with Isobel Campbell is an absolute belter

    IC has some good solo work too

    I have just listened to his first five albums one after another. I have the vinyl box set. What exceptionally high standards he set with that first five.

  8. Only really listened to Ballad of the Broken Seas which is excellent. He can be a bit dirgey for me.

    Tbh all three albums he did with Isobel Campbell are good.I would also especially recommend his more recent stuff..Phantom Radio,Black Pudding(with Duke Garwood),and Blues Funeral.
     


  11. Loved him with Screaming Trees (Dust was strange tho) and his solo stuff has been good too.

    This guy is fucking great. I’m now buying albums by The Screaming Trees as well as others that he has collaborated on.

    Screaming Trees were shite mainly but solo he's up there with the best.
    Bubblegum
    Here Comes That Weird Chill
    Whiskey For the holy ghost
    Phantom Radio
    All albums with Isobel Campbell
    The latest one with Duke Garwood which I forget the name of
    Also check out the Soulsavers albums that he sang on.
    Love the gravelly bastard me

    Screaming Trees shite? Dont be daft. Dust & Sweet Oblivion are far better than ANY of his solo albums

    I have been listening to Field Songs again today, been playing Low over and over.

    I’m not sure that I agree with the ST comment from what I’ve listened to so far.

    Muzo's musician, overrated as fuck.
     
  19. Dust was like a Cream recording. Strange stuff from them.

    I really like Saturnalia by the Gutter Twins, Mark and Greg Dulli. He also did some pretty good stuff with the Twilight Singers on Blackberry Belle and Queens of the Stone Age on Rated R and Songs for the Deaf.

    Some good songs on his last couple of albums but overall I'm not that keen on anything he's done after Blues Funeral. Whiskey for the Holy Ghost and Bubblegum are great.
